I went for kilt-tactical with this one:
This is another York Arms-centered AR-15, BTW. I picked up the stripped lower a few years ago (this one) and have been bouncing around ideas on what to do with it for a while. Initially I wanted to turn it into Freedom Rifle, a dedicated .22LR AR-15 for new shooters, except that a CMMG conversion kit and my Bushmaster have done that pretty handily.
So I opted to turn it into an M4gery. I'm in free America now. I can put a collapsing stock on my AR. I can put an upper with a bayonet lug on my AR. I can put a flash hider on my AR. I can put ALL THE THINGS on my AR now, because my new state doesn't put idiotic restrictions based on cosmetics. I built the lower myself (with a skosh of help from Wally and Aepilot Jim when I thought I'd messed things up but actually hadn't). It's a cool feeling to take a pile of parts and make something that works...
And if you were the lucky winner of the York Arms stripped lower, you could build one just like you want, too. Tell you what. I'll even up the ante: If I make it into the top three by the end, I'll toss in a Brownells High Standard lower parts kit to the prize package so that you can (partially) complete your lower. A custom, one-of-a-kind AR-15 lower *AND* a parts kit with which to finish it. And all you have to do is be the lucky winner - but you have to donate to win, and the more you donate, the better your chances...
There's a York Arms lower - and, possibly, a parts kit with which to finish it - at stake here. Anyone that donates gets a chance to win it. Every $5 is one chance (i.e. if you donate $25 you get 5 chances). As I've done in years past, I'll assign everyone numbers based on their chances and run a random number generator to determine a winner. Everyone who donates and e-mails me gets a shot.

Thanks to everyone who has donated, and especially Wally for the generous lower donation.
That is all.
